Believe & Be Born Anew!
God loves us so much that He sent His One True Son to this earth to save us – whoever puts their faith in His Son, Jesus Christ, is born anew and has eternal life!
1. Jesus Christ is God's One True Son.
‘One and only’ (monogenes) = sole one, only one of its kind
2. God sent His Son, Jesus, to save us not condemn us!
‘Save’(sodzo) =keep safe & sound, to rescue from danger or destruction, to make well, restore to health
3. We must believe, put our faith in Jesus, God’s Son, to be saved and born anew!
Believe = to be persuaded, place faith in, confidence in, completely trust
v. 3 ‘Born again or from above’ = spiritually reborn, born of the ‘Spirit’.
*there’s a warning here – verse 18 (for us and for others!)
